Desert City Soundtrack

On Perfect Addiction, Desert City Soundtrack continue to hone a sound with surprising flourishes and a refreshing lack of mainstream mongering. With Cory Gray’s oft-gelid ivory still at the fore, Perfect Addiction lessens the aural anguish prominent on 2003’s Funeral Car.

Other than the feedbacked furor and the muscular pulse of Brian Wright’s drums ending No Signal, much of the CD’s twelve tracks sigh with a brooding air. However, under words conjuring deathly imagery, crippling dependencies and an overall inability to cope, the hectoring ghosts of Desert City Soundtrack’s past aren’t completely forgotten. Playing The Martyr strikes a worthy balance between lilt and haste.

A song like the stormy, seafaring Whatever The Cost contrasts sonically and emotionally with a frail composition like First Sickness. This Portland trio can migrate from the simple balladry of Last Night’s Floor to a suspensefully abrasive string session like Good Times Without. Like a Sundance film dealing with mortality and everyday ennui that’s produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Desert City Soundtrack maintain their mastery of sad sonancy by loudly dealing with inner demons that refuse to die. It’s a disquieting journey that’s ultimately good for the soul. – Journal Review

Desert City Soundtrack are Cory Gray (Vocals, Piano, Bass, Trumpet), Matt Carrillo (Vocals, Guitar), Brian Wright (Drums, Percussion, Organ).The band resides in Portland, Oregon.
